Blood moon
  Tonight it is said to be a blood moon. Yikes!! What are they and should we be alarmed? Blood moons are just about eclipses, so no, nothing we should be concerned about. Same old moon as always.

The turning of the tide
  The world's leading economies, who couldn't agree on any actual policy on climate change at the G-8 Summit in Italy last July, opted instead to command the clouds, the seas and all of the Earth to cool, with a decree “the increase in global average temperature above pre-industrial levels shall not exceed 2 degrees [Celsius]”. Doesn’t this sound a bit like the vain attempts of King Canute to stop the waves?

The Year The Moon Stands Still
  Lunar standstill is the ancient name given to the time the moon reaches its maximum declination after 18.6 years. Callanish plots this slow progress, building to a crescendo in the 19th year at the lunar standstill - when the path of the moon is so low that it seems to walk along the horizon before setting within the stone circle.....

Moon on the move
  Declination is when the moon changes latitudes every 13 days. Taking the equator as starting point, after 7 days the moon is over Japan, over the next 7 days the equator, 7 days later over Brisbane and 7 days later back to the equator. In just one day, the distance traveled is equivalent to Oamaru to Blenheim.

The 18.613 yr cycle
  Earlier in the week Campbell Live on TV3 discussed erosion due to higher-than-normal tides on the West Coast as proof of global warming, with the fears now by the mayor and residents that the sea will keep coming in year after year unidirectionally, swallowing first the houses, then the road, the whole town, and finally the Alps. Utter bollocks. Anyone serious about rising seas this year or erosion clearly do not understand the tidal cycle. 18.6 years ago the tide heights were the same.

Antarctica has been thickening for the past 20 years and ice banking up has caused breakaway lumps, some appearing on our east coast in November. The Tasman glacier has been advancing since 1996. NZ had the coldest June since 1972, then a windy spring and a cold start to summer. A warmer world?
